People have been warned to take care along a coastal path at Happisburgh after a large section of it fell away.

Humber Coastguard said they received a call from a member of the public at about noon on Saturday (December 9) to say there had been 'substantial' cliff erosion.

A spokesman said they dispatched coastguard teams following the call and found a big part of the Beach Road coastal path had fallen away.

They have taped off the area and informed the local authority but have advised members of the public that parts of the path might be dangerous.

Pete Revell, Mundesley coastguard, said: 'The team from Happisburgh and Mundesley were paged at lunchtime today to reports of a cliff fall.

'Our advice is to stay away from the cliff and under no circumstances go near the cliff edge.'
